Tire Problems, too

My husband and I need 4 tires for our 1980 Airstream Excella. We put a regular tire on it when one blew out bringing it home, but know we are suppose to have trailer tires.

Can you have a regular tire company order them for you?

Thanks,

Alice

Murray,
OEM type rims are available from LowCostTrailerSupplies.com
Part #WH156-60E (2600# rating). Also OEM style (plain-without the orig.embossed rings):
Baby moon hubcaps Part # A-1309
4 wheels & caps = $234.36
The shipping is the killer.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but according to the Trailerparts website shouldn't the baby moon hubcaps be item A-1308 instead of A-1309 for 15" wheels?
Anyhoo, thanks much for the info. A fellow could learn something if he hung around here for a while

Sorry- probably wrote it down wrong. The website rules! Another very nice baby moon is available from repro. vintage Ford parts places, but I would have to look for info on it. I have some and they are great but fit really tight- a good thing but hard to mount /dismount without hassles.
